Hi Chris:
Seems a bit extreme to consider using the 12 gauge. I've found that a .22 works quite well. (Humour)
Hint! Pressurized tanks must have the pressure relieved BEFORE the lid can be removed.
If the lid has been over tightened or has stuck, you'll need to get more leverage to unscrew it. Sometimes a rag wrapped around it is all it takes.
You can also try pouring hot water over the cap. Lay the tank flat so the rim of the cap gets the heat. Wrap an old towel around it first so it gets a good hot soak.
Should come off without the artillery.

Hi Chris:
It is usually easiest to rest the weight on the tailgate of a pickup truck (or some other device) and then slip out of the harness.
Another technique is to lift bend forward while at the same time rising one shoulder and lowering the other. That will create "slack" on the low shoulder side allowing you to get that arm out.

Make sure it has the right amount of oil in the crank case, if over filled the oil will foam and flow out any place it can, Worn piston rings can cause blowby into the crank case , causing oil to escape from the dipstick tube.

Disconnect the wand from the washer if you get water coming out of the discharge, the problem is in your wand or the line is plugged going to the wand.

If you switch the unit on and water spits out of a connection, that's where you either put the O-rings or replace them.

There is a spring in there that makes it recoil. It has probably broken. Depending on who made the engine you can get a replacement for the whole assembly. A small engine shop should be able to replace it for a not a lot of money.

If it is a screw drive like mine all I needed to do was lube up the screw with a product called "fluid film" and all was ok. The screw was binding making the sensor think the door was blocked and it would go back up.

The numbers on the side of a framing square are used for many things. The small leg allows you to quickly lay out a wall on16" centers. The other rows of numbers help you figure the correct sizes to cut for hip roofs (roofs that have slope on all four sides.)You can get an instruction Manual from Stanley or it may be availabile on the net. Google (framing square instructions)
